I hope this is not true

What if I told you the Obama administration's first major post-election policy move was a big, fat gift for Rupert Murdoch?

What if I told you some of us will try to not let this happen?




On Edit: The FCC's own data show ownership of broadcast radio and television stations by women and minorities remains at abysmally low levels. Women own less than 7 percent of radio and TV stations; people of color control only 3.6 percent of TV stations and 8 percent of radio stations.

This is why this is important: http://signon.org/sign/restore-the-airwaves

1. Sam Zell already ownes those newspapers - just one wingnut for another

Besides, the rule that two newspapers in a city cannot be owned by the same company is archaic now that most cities are down to one newspaper.

I live in Atlanta and we have one paper (fairly liberal) and the state is Deep Red.


(ETA - The Tribune Company filed Ch 11 several years ago so technically Sam Zell no longer owns it)

2. This is true.

But if repugs truly wanted the market to be competative there would be 2 or 3 papers and 20-25 different broadcast owners( i.e. Los Angeles) repugs would be making an honest statement.
